About us
The British Council is the UK’s international organisation for cultural relations and educational opportunities. We create friendly knowledge and understanding between the people of the UK and other countries. We do this by making a positive contribution to the UK and the countries we work with – changing lives by creating opportunities, building connections and engendering trust.
We work with over 100 countries across the world in the fields of arts and culture, English language, education and civil society. Each year we reach over 20 million people face-to-face and more than 500 million people online, via broadcasts and publications. Founded in 1934, we are a UK charity governed by Royal Charter and a UK public body.
 The European Union includes 31 countries with a physical presence in 24 countries, an overall turnover of £140m, employing 2,000 people and engaging 16m people annually. English language is of primary importance for our work in Europe, whether teaching through English at our flagship school in Madrid, or, across Europe, providing a range of English language learning experiences for adults and children and working with governments to improve standards of English language teaching in the school system.
Our cultural relations activities also include broader Education and Skills work, the Arts and contemporary social issues. From our regional hub in Brussels, we identify and pursue funding opportunities with the Commission for projects which help us increase our cultural relations impact in Europe and around the world. Partnership is central to all of our work and we are increasingly exploring new opportunities to work on shared agendas with partners in the public and private sector.
The Netherlands is part of the Northwest Cluster covering: Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, Austria, Switzerland, Ireland and the Nordics. In the Netherlands we run an exams business with a turnover of £3.5m and small-scale grant-funded activity in the Education sector.
